Stroke Misdiagnosis Claims

If I have a case about a stroke


If I have a case about a stroke

Establishing whether you have a case for making a stroke claim involves exactly the same investigation as any other claim for clinical negligence. Access Legal’s expert lawyers need to show that there was a breach of the duty of care owed to you by the responsible healthcare staff in failing to provide the appropriate care to you.

The onus will be on you with the support of an experienced lawyer at Access Legal to prove that 'on the balance of probability' (i.e. greater than 50% likelihood) those failures were responsible for the injuries and actual physical harm you suffered.

Deciding if you have a case will also depend on the nature and severity of your injury, to what extent you recover and what the long term effect on your health and well-being may be. These are complex, lengthy and demanding cases in which the major concern will be rehabilitation and continuing medical care to aid your recovery and provide whatever support you and your family may need.

There are time limits within which you can claim so whatever your circumstances you should contact Access Legal as soon as is practicable. We can then give you free initial advice about whether a claim is possible and establish what additional treatments you may require to help you deal with the future, whatever your prognosis.
